Verify the glow bar ignitor is coming on. You can do a amp draw test on the ignitor. If 3 amps or less,replace it.

Gas dryer wont stay lit


I'm assuming it "starts" to heat but then cuts off. Usually after the first minute of running you can open dryer door and feel heat but after awhile it doesn't heat.

1st, most common problem on a gas dryer not heating is "airflow" . They will "short-cycle" if there isn't near perfect airflow. Turn dryer on and go to outside exhaust vent. It should blow about as hard as you can blow into your hand. If any doubt disconnect dryer vent line from wall and let blow into your laundry room for one cycle and see if it is now working correctly. If it does work correctly when vent line is disconnected at wall you KNOW there is blockage somewhere in your vent line.

2nd, most common problem are gas coils. Easy to replace. 99% of all gas coils are the same so here is the part# (WE04X10020) (write it down.

Hello,
A very typical problem with GAS dryers is the soloniod coils that open the gas valve . When the coils are cool they operate just fine,but once the dryer gets warm from running the coils dont open the gas valve wwhen they are warm. If that is what your experiencing,the dryer heats when its cool but doesn't heat when it's been running for a while,the coils on the gas valve will need to be replaced.

Low heat output


A clogged or partially clogged vent . Especially if vents up thru the wall . If it vents straight out , make sure you have good air flow to the outside . Make sure the vent hose has no sharp kinks also . Try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the dryer . If clothes dry fine , that tells you the problem is elsewhere . Normally , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . A heat for a few minutes then stops heating but continues to run complaint ,would be bad coils on the gas valve .

I have a kenmore series 70 dryer (model # 78702894) gas dryer that is running but no heat. How safe is it for me to disconnect the gas line so I can remove the rear panel?


I am having a similar problem (I get heat for about 7 minutes then it stops heating) and just removed the back housing.  I did not have to disconnect the gas line to do this.  Just removed several screws. If your model is constructed differently and the gas line has to be disconnected, make sure you turn the gas off at the shut off switch back at the gas pipe.
Reading on your issue suggests to start by cleaning out all vent hoses to clear any lint obstructions.  I would start there and see if things improved then proceed to removing the back housing to get at the stuff in there.

Maytag performa dryer doesn't fully heat


A couple of suggestions. STOP, be sure the gas it turned off before disconnecting the line. Move it to an open area and check all venting. A good cleaning makes a huge difference. I believe your problem to be the heating coil is on it's way out, "works sometime". Write down the Make, Model, Seriel Number & Year of MFG...someone may ask for it..Check Your local appliance store for price & availablity Easy to replace on most model dryers.
When reattaching the gas line, be safe not to overtighten the coupler. A safe test for leaks is NOT a match... a drop or two of dishsoap around the fittings will bubble if it is not sealed. Good Luck
